Argentina's continuing claim to sovereignty of the Falkland Islands, against Britain, was still in the hands of the United Nations when in 1982, Argentine troops seized the islands in a lightning raid. This title gives first hand accounts from combat veteran pilots of the battles that transpired, and tells the tale of commanders who relive their death-defying wartime missions. It details a conflit whose global repercussions and after effects can still be felt in the world, focusing on the long-range logistics of the conflict for the RAF, the difficult conditions in the South Atlantic, and the successes and failures of British tactics.
